11). Completion of the shrine of Syed Wilayat Ali Shah after 142 years:

Syed Inayat Ali Shah tried to search the tombstone for his martyred brother for the remainder of his life but to no avail. When Syed Inayat Ali Shah’s eldest son Syed Gul Zaman Shah came of age he told him about the martyrdom of Syed Wilayat Ali shah and how he was unable to find the burial place of his brother. Gradually and systematically Syed Gul Zaman Shah was able to trace the burial place and grave of his uncle Syed Wilayat Ali Shah in Hathala. Syed Gul Zaman Shah was unable to finish the construction on the shrine. The descendants of Syed Gul Zaman Shah kept visiting the grave of their ancestors; however, through time the shrine remained open to the skies and without a perimeter wall.

At last, Syed Jahangir Abbas Shah son of Syed Abbas Ali Shah son of Syed Jalal Hussain Shah son of Syed Gul Zaman Shah son of Syed Inayat Ali Shah son of Syed Ameer Shah a retiree of the Air force of Pakistan settled back in Dera Ismail Khan in 1982-83. Soon after he was appointed the Airport Manager for the Dera Ismail Khan airport where an employee from Hathala also worked and one day he shared the story of Syed Wilayat Ali Shah’s shrine and how through time no one has ever been able to finish the job started almost a century and a half ago.

Immediately, Syed Jahangir Abbas Shah decided to visit the shrine of Syed Wilayat Ali Shah. Most of the elders of the Jalalia family then settled in Dera Ismail Khan in Mohallah Jalal Hussain Shah decided that they all should visit their ancestor in Hathala. Finally, in 1985-86 Syed Jahangir Abbas finished the construction of the shrine as well as the perimeter wall on his own expense and nothing tragic happened afterwards or during this construction. That is how after waiting 142 years Syed Wilayat Ali Shah’s son built him his shrine.

4). Migration from Derajat (Tiba Fazil Shah) to Dera Ismail Khan:

Syed Ameer Shah S/O (Son of) Hazrat Syed Fazil Shah—a monkish and dervish natured person—was at the pinnacle of knowledge and blessings. Syed Ameer shah had immense comprehension of the religious matters and was a Hafiz-e-Quran (a person who has memorized the Holy Quran). He spent most of his time worshiping Allah. He was blessed with five sons.

  1. Syed Wilayat Ali Shah was the eldest
  2. Syed Fateh Darya Shah was the second eldest
  3. Syed Qutab Ali Shah was the third eldest
  4. Syed Abbas Shah was the fourth eldest
  5. Syed Inayat Ali Shah was the youngest

Unfortunately, Syed Inayat Ali Shah did not live long and died at an early age.

It was revealed unto Syed Ameer Shah (Rematullah Aliha) to migrate to the city of Dera Ismail Khan in the Service of the Allah and serve Allah’s purpose though the preaching of Islam. Upon receiving the imperative Syed Ameer Shah sent his eldest son Syed Wilayat Ali Shah—an erudite scholar of the religion and a stable personality—along with his youngest son Syed Inayat Ali Shah to embark on a journey towards Dera Ismail Khan. Whereas,  Syed Fateh Darya Shah—a scholar, a hafiz-e-Quran, and an expert in the life history of the prophet Muhammad (SAW), and a pious man—was told to serve the community by spreading the word of Allah and helping the people have a better understanding of Islam while staying put at Tibba Fazil Shah. All of the descendents of Syed Fateh Darya Shah live within the vicinity of Tibba Fazil Shah to date. However, Syed Ameer Shah along with his two sons- Syed Wilayat Ali Shah and Syed Inayat Ali Shah- migrated to Dera Ismail Khan in 1838 AD ~ 1255 Hijri.
